Monmouth Ground Zero

This is really great. I was so glad to see an article pop up (after Roundup) about the rise in political force of Monmouth County’s LGBT community. From the piece, by the Ledger’s Mark Bonamo:

The LGBT community is growing both numerically and politically in Monmouth County. According to the 2010 Census, 24,112 same-sex couples now live in New Jersey – a 45 percent increase from 2000. The sharpest increase was in Asbury Park, which had a 305 percent gain in same-sex couples.
